Position Description

​​​​​​Aging and Disability Services Division (ADSD) is recruiting for multiple Health Care Coordinator 2 positions located at the Community Based Care Unit (CBC) in Reno/Sparks.  

Health Care Coordinators perform professional work related to program operations and auditing providers to ensure compliance with program policies and regulations. They evaluate individuals referred to the medical services program and provide ongoing case management services to Medicaid eligible clients; evaluate the need for medical services, treatment, equipment and supplies and authorize payment; screen individuals to determine appropriate level of care in nursing homes; review programs to ensure services are being provided in a cost effective manner; participate in program development by providing input on policies and procedures, forms, medical coverage and system enhancements.

ADSD positions assigned to the CBC ensure a coordinated support system to meet the needs of at-risk elderly and disabled persons by providing case management and essential services to recipients of CBC programs statewide to facilitate community integration and avoid institutionalization. Responsibilities include case management, assessment, eligibility determination, development, implementation, and oversight of the plan of care, home visits and documentation utilizing a web-based case management software system. 

ADSD provides an atmosphere of innovative thinking, teamwork, friendly co-workers, and a positive working environment. The mission of ADSD is to provide leadership and advocacy in the planning, development, and delivery of a high quality, comprehensive support service system across the lifespan to allow all of Nevada's elders, children, and adults with disabilities or special health care needs, to live independent, meaningful, and dignified lives to the greatest extent possible.

Incumbents possess a degree of knowledge and proficiency sufficient to perform work independently with little or no additional training.
